Rockets a step closer to dethroning Warriors

  • Hey Warriors It's Time to Come Out and Play

"If you can shimmy on somebody else, you've got to be all right getting shimmied on".

Depending on the length of the conference finals, the advancing teams will only have a handful of days to rest and prepare to battle for the Larry O'Brien Trophy.

The Warriors will have a chance to tie the series and send it to Game 7 in Houston if they can land a win against the Rockets at home on Saturday.

"[The trainers] will do whatever they can do", D'Antoni said. He said the soreness diminished significantly between Games 3 and 4.

Everyone will be talking about what Chris Paul did during the third quarter. But the victory came with a cost, as Paul had to leave the game in the final minute with a right hamstring injury.

Paul carried Houston in the second half of Game 5, scoring 18 of his 20 points.

While his gamesmanship, chirping and constant working of the referees have often made Paul a polarizing figure, his devotion to his craft is unimpeachable.


D'Antoni said Eric Gordon will start in Paul's place. He's one of the best players that have played the game.

"He just shook his head and said: "Man, I don't even want to think about him being hurt".

Paul has been sidelined by a hamstring injury on four occasions during his career, according to ESPN Stats & Information. As if the foot injury wasn't bad enough.

Paul, who began his career in New Orleans with the Hornets, has never advanced this far in the playoffs.

Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James is focused on keeping his team's season alive by defeating the Boston Celtics in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals on Friday night. Meanwhile, the Warriors are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 home games, 4-17 ATS in their last 21 games playing on one days rest and 10-24 ATS in their last 34 games against a team with a winning record. "So, we'll see what happens". The bulk of his offensive touches have come in the post area, and Houston has done a great job of suffocating him in an area of the court that is hard to survey.

"We've got plenty of guys over there that will have some fresh legs, that's for sure", the coach said.

Curry brought back his shimmy move during Golden State's blowout win in Game 3. That absence, of course, contributed to the Clippers' infamous 3-1 collapse against the Rockets in the second round.
